January Parent University (ParentU)
On January 13, our ParentU focus will be on Middle School Social Media Use. We want to highlight the importance of digital citizenship for our champions at school and at home. We will send the link to our January ParentU closer to the date.
Pennies for Prizes
In the month of February, ICI will have Pennies for Prizes to raise money for our PBIS (Positive Behaviors and Supports) Program. More information will be sent to our families about this event!
Mid- Year I-Ready
We will take our I-Ready for Mid- Year on January 18th and 20th. We expect our champions to do their best on these assessments and not rush. This lets us know where we need to move forward to move the academic needle.The school schedule will be modified during these days to assure all champions have the opportunity to do their best.
Throughout the month of January, we will be resetting the Middle School norms and expectations. During the first and second week back, we will use our CLIMB time to reteach expectations including: Dress Code, School Rules
Middle School will begin implementing a program called E-Hallpass. This will allow for our teachers and students to use digital passes to move throughout the building when they are supposed to be in class. There are many benefits to using this system that include:
- Reduction of paper waste
- Receipt of appointment notifications for our Counselor
- Collection of data to support our effort to reduce the ongoing vandalism
- and so much more
Middle and Upper School are in need of new and unused/unopened travel-sized toiletries that we can use for students. The following specific needs would be greatly appreciated:
- Body spray
- Face/Body wipes
- Lotion- Body lotions both scented and unscented
- Cosmetic bags- something that could be used to discreetly distribute items to students
- Other unused and unopened items that may be given with subscription services such as Ipsy or what you may receive after purchasing cosmetics
If you can provide donations please send them inside of a bag and label the bag with “Toiletry Donations.” These can be brought to the front desk or to a counselor via your student.
